Blue Lock Season 2 Story
Blue Lock follows the story of a high schooler, Yoichi Isagi, who aims to be part of the Japanese football national team and be the best striker in the world.
After Japan was eliminated in the FIFA 2018 World Cup, the Japanese Football Union started a scouting and training program for high school players in preparation for the 2022 Cup.
There they meet Coach Ego Jinpachi who introduced them to a radical and harsh training regimen.
The scheme isolates 300 young strikers in an institution called “Blue Lock” and puts them in rigorous training to create “the world’s greatest egotist striker”. Those who fail will never be permitted to represent any Japanese team.
With this, Isagi fights for his place and learns to find his own playing style to become the best egotistical player in Japan.
